Welcome back to Take 10: Ten Minutes of Professional Learning. As we continue to adjust to distance learning for both our educators and out students, we want to continue to provide you with resources you can use. Today we ask you to take 10 minutes to review these resources from one of our favorite online resources, STEM Teaching Tools. They have compiled a list of advice for teachers embarking on distance learning as a result of the impact of COVID-19.
